This project was really simple to make and this is how I did it:
What I Used to Make my Project:
Scrap Wood 7x7
Red Glitter Paper
Red "Suede" Paper
Memory Box Snowflake Heart Die, #99031
Cut File "Love with a Flourish", Silhouette Store, #55227
Oblong Piece of Red Cardstock
I have had this piece of scrap wood for some time and when I saw Challenge #49 at Anything But a Card was Anything Goes I knew it was time to use it. The hardest part of making this was folding the glitter paper. I used a generic manufacturer and I don't know if that had anything to do with the troubles I had, trying to fold the paper around the wood and get it to stay glued was quite an ordeal. Fortunately, armed with my bulldog clips and waxed paper I got the job done.
The next step was die cutting the heart - I even saved all the little snowflakes! I used suede paper (sometimes called velvet paper) to make the heart. I trimmed around the heart and them mounted it on an oblong piece of scrap red paper, then mounted that onto the glitter paper.
Then I used my Silhouette to cut out the Love word out of of heavy silver cardstock and placed that on the piece. Once that was dry I was done :) I felt like I bit into a York Peppermint Pattie - hehehe! I hope you enjoyed my "Frosty Love" project and that your summer (or winter) is going well. Hugs. Christi
